Service was very good, as was the food. My steak a little under cooked, but other steak was fine.

Service was impeccable but we were seated in a high traffic area which was very distracting. We had the porter house special which was a wonderful meal. The wine list is extensive but priced quite high. We settled on a malbec by the glass which we both enjoyed immensely. Overall Walter’s was a worthwhile experience.

Walters defends its title as one of the best steakhouse restaurants in Brisbane. I would recommend to any one wanting to experience excellent quality food and service, but keep in mind that you do pay for the privilege.
The house speciality steak was one of the best I have experienced around the world.

Great food and restaurant. A bit disappointed we didn't receive our bread to start which it states on the menu and also had to ask for mustards and signature sauce. Would have thought they would have been all over that. Nonetheless a good experience and the waiter was nice and drinks perfect. Loved the Walters signature steak and beef tartare

We have dined at Walters a few times in the past couple of years. It's a 'go to' place we bring guests where we know that great food, excellent service and pleasant decor will consistently be good. Service cannot be faulted, presentation of food and taste is always impeccable. However. For the first time we sat at one of the booths, and both walked away with sore backs. The marble topped table was incredibly heavy to shift , so we ended up half perched on the seat to eat. Next time we will specify normal table and chair. If you are a tad older and a little bit hard of hearing (as we are) then you will also be straining to hear each other, as the acoustics magnify all noise. Apart from that, we'll be back to enjoy the wonderful food, and the impeccable service.

Sensational! We recently dined at Rockpool in Melbourne, and Walter's Steakhouse in Brisbane was hands down better than Rockpool! We couldn't fault a thing. The steak (porterhouse for 2), sides, and entrées (duck parfait, and crab cakes) were absolutely delicious, and the service was impeccable. Also a magnificent wine list. We're so happy that we decided to dine at Walter's whilst on a recent trip from Melbourne!

We were having a Birthday celebration for my father. All our meals were very tasty, especially the new entre and side additions. I shared a dry aged Tee bone, it was perfectly cooked to the requested medium rare. We had a well matched red wine to go with our meal. All up - a fantastic special meal.

The food overall was good and the steak was great. Unfortunately we were seated right next to the kitchen door, even though there were spare and unreserved tables elsewhere. Maybe we looked too 'Brisbane', and not 'New York' enough. The night was spoilt by the waiter asking outright for a tip at the end of the night... the owners need to know that even though they aim for a NY vibe, we are actually in Australia and not the US.

Fantastic whole dining experience. The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed. The drinks and wait staff were wonderfully attentive without being intrusive. The food was exceptional. Be warned, the portion sizes do not come with any warnings and are huge. We shared a steak for 2 and it was beautiful. A welcome addition to Brisbane dining scene and the best steak restaurant in town since Daniels Steakhouse closed.

If you’re a steak enthusiast, the signature Porterhouse at Walter’s is a must try! Dry aged in house and presented sizzling at the table.. no sauce is needed when you get a steak with this delectable flavour. For sides, I recommend the creamed spinach and German potatoes (and a slice of the thick cut bacon for entree!). You can’t go wrong with any of the American desserts, it’s a heavy finish with the schlag but a satisfying one.

The decor is classic NYC steakhouse with a charming bar next to the restaurant that is perfect for pre-dinner drinks. My fourth visit here and I can’t wait to return again!

Wi felt it was too expensive from the fact that a steak for two was $118 plus one had to buy the sides at an extra $12 per serving. We feel that a chef should be able to judge correctly the quantity, and variation of the vegetables served. So for us to have three vegetables with our meat selection as is usual, we would need to get 3 sides of vegies for and additional $36.

We visited here two days ago. At that time, the waiter explained the food very kindly and skillfully, and our steak was very well baked, so we had a really delicious dinner. So I made a reservation again the day before I left Brisbane. But on this day the waiter was very negligent (I felt like that he was discriminating us because we were Asian). And the meat was very hard and soon cooled down. We were very disappointed.

Walter’s Steak House brings in an old fashion ambience to Brisbane’s growing modern cuisine. Once you enter, you are swept with wooden furniture, classic dim lit lighting and friendly staff greeting you as you come in. You are taken back to the 1900s as you are seated to the bar ordering a Penicillin as you wait for your table and admiring the bartender concocting an exotic drink that you will definitely order your next round. Once you feel settled you are guided by friendly staff to your seat where your nostrils will be filled by the umami of steak, sounds of popping of fresh red wine will echo in the distance and a slight rush of adrenaline will kick in anticipation for what you are about to experience. There is a wide variety of food on the menu seafood, vegetables, chicken but you are there for one thing and one thing only, the steak. You have brought your friends to share with you in a fine dining experience so you will make the best decision of the night, the steak for 4 (there’s only 3 of you).

The main event has arrived after losing track of time chit-chatting about the weekly goings and your eyes are feasted to a holy sizzling relic that only what you can imagine a holy person would cook if they had a go on the grill. The waiter cuts up the necessary pieces for your sacrilicious dinner and you would normally wait for the others to be served but desperation gets the better of you. Upon the first bite, you are greeted to a deep crunch followed by a soft pillow of textures swirling in your mouth. The ocean of meat has filled your cheeks and your tongue is Poseidon commanding the waves to go down to your carnivorous depths. You awaken to see your friends tilting their heads, rolling their eyes and moaning like a choir on a Sunday at church. Tis is a glorious sight to behold and to share with your fellow brethren. Once the transcendence of your dining experience is over, you are now a prophet and you must go out there and preach to the world your experience.

Monday night and restaurant was half full or more, good service with attentive waiters who knew the menu well and could answer all question re food and wine list. Noise level was quiet to moderate and ambience was what was expected. Great location in heritage listed building. Food prices are high but worth the money. Wine list is too dear though. Would highly recommend.

Good location, nice place to eat. Food we had was nice and plentiful. We should have stopped at the desert as it isn't that special. Mass produced or not the chefs forte. Stop after the steak and you'll go home happy, lighter and with your taxi fare still intact. Would I go again. Yes of course, nice staff, atmosphere. I can skip the desert.
